About the WOW weight limit feature on DM series meters

UPDATED: 14 June 2015

WOW® stands for Weigh-On-The-Way®.  You can set a weight limit for WOW processing up to 500 grams. Any mail piece that exceeds this weight will exit the system as an exception, and must be manually processed.

Important:
This setting is typically used when the mailer sets an internal company rule that all mail pieces over a certain weight should be processed with a different carrier, class, or fee.

Example:
Your company may have a policy that all mail pieces over 250 grams must be considered for a different class. In this case, you would set the WOW limit to 250 grams, and the system stops you if an overweight piece is detected. If the meter detects a mail piece over 250 grams, the meter shows the prompt, Mail Too Heavy. To continue, you must Press Clear to bypass the error.
